west midlands genomic medicine centre
Giving staff the knowledge and skills to embed genomics within the NHS
The 100K Genomes Project has the potential to change clinical practice, bringing benefits to patients across the region and creating a legacy which embeds genomics in healthcare. The West Midlands is the largest genomic medicine centre taking part in the 100,000 Genomes Project and comprises a consortium of 16 trusts across the region.
A Genomics education and training programme has been established to support the delivery of the project and provide genomics education and training. A suite of educational programmes have been developed to prepare staff to work with the 100,000 Genomes Project and embed genomics knowledge through all NHS professional groups.
